Is it a sign you have too many typewriters when you find a Remington No. 2 in the recesses of your trunk and you have no idea where it came from?
I seem to find the 1's and 2's more than any other make and model. I've had at least five at one point or another, all black. This is the latest model.
The platen is somewhat brownish. Not sure if it's just worn down or if brown was somehow the original colour.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Remington Portable 3 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Remington Serial Number page and the Remington Portable 3 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
